My daughter requested a FROZEN 5th birthday party!
We celebrated her special day with many of her friends at our local children’s museum. Like many young ladies, Kira is in LOVE with the movie Frozen. She asked if she could have a Frozen birthday party…and of course we said YES. Little did we know that it would not be easy finding Frozen themed merchandise. Luckily we found dessert plates, napkins and a banner at the Party City near my sister’s house in Los Angeles (mind you we looked in Fresno and didn’t find anything).
After searching Pinterest, I decided to make goodie bags for Kira’s friends (instead of filling up a bag full of junk that their parent’s will eventually toss).
You will need (to make 20 goodie bags):
- 20 – 3.5 x 2 x 7.5 cellophane bags (This is the size I used. I like the gusseted sides so the items fill the bag nicely. Plus since the bag is longer you can fold it over for freshness.)
- 2- bags of large/regular sized marshmallows
- 1 – bag of mini marshmallows
- 1 – bag of pretzel sticks
- 1 – bag of mini chocolate chips
- 1 – bag of mini m&m’s
- 7 – pieces of photo paper (I used high gloss brochure paper.)
- Paintshop Pro or similar program
Step 1: Find the image free online. I downloaded a few FREE FROZEN digital kits over the past few months. Just visit Pinterest and search for free Frozen printables and you will have a slew of freebies to choose from. Plus I have a few free Frozen downloads on my blog. Once you have found the image of Olaf you wish to use, then use Paintshop Pro to create a 3.5 x 6 inch label. Be sure to flip the back portion of the text and image upside-down so it will be right-side-up when you fold your label. Once I created the label I put them side-by-side on an 8.5 x 11 document and saved as a pdf. Print 7 and cut to the appropriate size – 3.5 x 6 (this will give you 7 labels…just in case you mess up).
Step 2: Fill each gusseted cellophane bag with 3 regular sized marshmallows (for the body), 2 mini marshmallows (for the legs), 2 pretzel sticks (for the arms), 2 mini chocolate chips (for the eyes), and 3 mini m&m’s (for the buttons).
Step 3: Fold the labels in half. Fold the top of the cellophane bag over. Staple the label onto the top of the cellophane bag.
Step 4: Place them in a box… and let your party guests enjoy. I also bought ice cream gift certificates for Kira’s guests. Everyone seemed to like their goodies.
